Abstract

Traumatic chiasmal syndrome is a rare condition manifested by the onset of a bitemporal hemianopia after head trauma. Trauma is one of the rarer aetiologies of a bitemporal hemianopia. Few patients survive the severe impact required to damage the anatomically privileged optic chiasm. Those who do survive have usually sustained a variety of neuro-endocrine and neurological deficits in addition to the visual signs.
